Everyone here at Mycotours hopes that you are all having a great year so far. 2013 has been an exciting year for us, and we are pleased to announce our dates that are scheduled for this year’s mushroom season. As always, if you cannot make the scheduled forays, or would like something a bit more private, send us an email with your contact information so we can plan a date for you. All scheduled forays include a cooking demonstration and snacks at the end of the hunt. We meet at 8 am and will be out in the forest for approximately 4 hours (weather permitting). Price is $35 per person per hunt, unless otherwise noted. Unfortunately due to lack of time this year, we will not be scheduling Texas Morel forays. We apologize to all who voiced interest in these hunts during the winter. To reserve a spot on one of our trips, click here!
The Colorado Rocky Mountains is world renowned for it’s abundance of this choice edible mushroom. Here, forests produce not only Boletus edulis (The King, Porcini, Cep) but also the extremely rare White Porcini (Boletus barrowsii) that is known by some mycologists to be one of the most delicious mushrooms around. The season for Porcini in the Rocky Mountains varies year by year, but is usually sometime between June thru late August. We have scheduled some forays during the most prime time of year for these prized edibles. All Porcini forays will be located somewhere in the mountains near Denver, Colorado Springs, or Boulder. To RSVP, please visit our booking page here.
Chanterelles and Matsutake are known the world over as some of the best edible mushrooms. Colorado is lucky enough to have abundant habitat that is perfect for these particular mushrooms, and during the late summer, you will find many people looking in the forest for these elusive mushrooms. But beyond the most well known mushrooms, Colorado has many different types of edible mushrooms that fruit during the late summer months. Mycotours provides expert guides to help you find them and take you to some of the most beautiful locations anywhere in the Rocky Mountains.
